Updates for PhoneGap 1.1 and 1.2 The Beginning PhoneGap book was mostly written while PhoneGap 0.9.6 was the current version. By the time the book was in review, we made alterations for the 1.0 release, but while the book was being printed, Nitobi releases 1.1 and 1.2. Just recently, PhoneGap released version 1.3, with further support for Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry development on the Mac.
Needless to say, there have been more than minor changes to the code and approaches to development with PhoneGap. In some cases, functions/methods have been deprecated, others have been added, and support for different mobile devices/operating systems added or removed.
This document is a catalog of those changes as of January 2012.
